Decision

The Committee carried the recommendation unanimously.

Background

Under existing conditions, vehicles travelling westbound on Oxford Street into Pelican Street, turn at speed through the marked pedestrian crossing, failing to give-way to pedestrians. This scenario creates unsafe conditions for pedestrians crossing Pelican Street.
